Let’s talk Eggs Benny! This is one of those meals that I order at restaurants because I think that it is too intimating to make them at home? The name sounds so elegant and the sauce is just so fancy. Not anymore! I am excited to share a super easy and very delicious Eggs Benny with you.
Let me take a minute to introduce you to Epicure’s Easy Eggs Benedict. This deliciously easy-to-make meal comes together with Epicure’s Hollandaise Sauce. If you can add butter to a pan and stir, I promise that you can make this meal at home in minutes. Take a look at the recipe below.
Easy Eggs Benedict
Make a breakfast and brunch favourite at home! The best part? A foolproof sauce that can be made in the microwave or stovetop (recipes on pack).
Perfectly Balance Your Plate
Serve with 1 cup fresh fruit.
1 tsp white vinegar
4 English muffins, split and toasted
1⁄2 cup prepared Hollandaise Sauce
- Fill a medium saucepan until it’s 2⁄3 full of water. Add vinegar; bring to a boil over high heat.
- Reduce heat; simmer. Using a spoon or spatula, create a whirlpool by stirring the water in one direction. In a Prep Bowl, crack one egg. Gently slip the egg into the centre of the whirlpool. Repeat with three more eggs. Cook until egg whites are set and yolk is done to your liking, about 4 min for a soft poach. Using a slotted spoon, remove from water and drain on a paper or kitchen towel. Repeat process with remaining four eggs. (or see the Microwave hack below)
- Place two English muffin halves on each plate. Place one egg on each muffin half. Drizzle 1 tbsp sauce over each egg.
How easy is that? Are you like me, thinking poaching eggs sounds too complicated. Don’t worry I have you covered. Coming from a person who likes my eggs ‘firm‘ (for lack of a better word), the thought of a poached egg just turned my stomach.
Easy Hack for Microwaved Poached Eggs
I recently discovered how to Poach Eggs in the Microwave in just seconds. It is super easy and really doesn’t require any special gadgets. I simply use one of Epicure’s 1 cup prep bowls with the silicone lid. I add 1/2 cup of water and crack the egg carefully into the water. Now, this is the important step and please don’t skip it as you will literally have an egg explosion in your microwave. Be sure to carefully poke a hole all the way through your yolk. This will allow the steam to escape and will lessen the chance of a big bang in your microwave. Simply microwave on high with the lid resting on the bowl for 40-50 seconds depending on how well done you want your yolk, but you man need to experiment with your own microwave.
